For My Child

I love, and live in you my child
I wonder! I can create beauty
With such aesthetic outlining of yours
I made an artistry 

My last words are yours,
Spoken out in a long deep whisper;
My way is curved like your face
In your look thus I stay forever

You were born on the day I was pushed out 
Of my mother's womb,
And I know you outlive
When I will be placed in a tomb.

Love-blood oozes out from
A bare empty heart;
In your vacancy 
So, I am torn apart.

Thus my DNA is in your making
Grafted my dreams;
In the timeline you and me
Will make a ripple in the streams.

At last, when you grow
You you feel
How a father's heart
in you, would live still.
